1 Week Until the Great Solar Eclipse!
Only one week until the Great American Eclipse of 2017. We will be observing this eclipse with solar astrophotographer Tim Connolly, who took the photos of the Sun below.
Please plan on joining us from 12:30 - 4:00 pm, next Monday, August 21st at the Adirondack Public Observatory, 178 Big Wolf Road in Tupper Lake. We will have lots of art projects, games and prizes all related to the Sun and the eclipse. Our event and all activities are FREE! See our Event poster and previous Blog entry for more information about the eclipse.
The photos below show flares at the limb of the Sun, and were taken by Tim Connolly on Sunday, August 13, 2017. Enjoy!
